    Baahir is the correct pronunciation but "i" has a short vowel sound.
    Like Arabic, short vowel are not written in Urdu, so any one reading Urdu can pronounce a word differently. Baahir and Baahar are written as "باہر ".
    The pronunciation baahar is wrong. Bahaar (بہار), as you wrote, is the spring season.
    Similarly the pronunciation "mausam" is correct:
